My Current Read:
"Swept Away" by Mary Connealy
The Book Beginning:
"The sharp crack of a cocking pistol brought Lucas Stone's head around."
A very dramatic start to the book!
The 56th Page:
"But Pa was dead now and the S Bar S Ranch stolen, his sister driven from their home. It couldn't be allowed to stand, not in the United States of America. Not in the land Luke had fought to preserve."
Luke is very driven to get his land back while he was away fighting in the war. Very honorable.
